I am an international student currently working on a CPT, who should I contact if my current internship/co-op is being impacted?

What should I do if I have concerns regarding my health and possible exposure to coronavirus at my co-op/internship?

Your health is a PRIORITY.  Initiate a conversation with your employer to discuss your concerns.  Prepare for the conversation, outline your concerns, and give them the opportunity to address those concerns.  Inquire about the possibility of working remotely to achieve the desired scope of work.  If remote work isn’t possible with your employer, explore if the internship/co-op could be postponed for a future semester.  Before agreeing to a new work term, please consult with your career advisor.  If you feel that you need an additional advocate, our office is happy to reach out to employers as well.  Email and we will be in touch to gather additional information and discuss next steps.
